Hot off the Press: The Menorah: From the Bible to Modern Israel, by Prof. Steven Fine (2015 Shohet Scholar Recipient)

ICS warmly congratulates one of the 2015 Shohet Scholars, Prof. Steven Fine, upon the publication of his latest book with Harvard University Press, entitled The Menorah: From the Bible to Modern Israel (Cambridge, MA, 2016). In this work, Fine, the Dean Pinkhos Professor of Jewish History at Yeshiva University, analyzes the appearance of the Menorah throughout history, even in unexpected settings (and for this, there are illustrations, for in some cases, one really has to see it to believe it!). A must-read also for the latest on Fine's study of the Arch of Titus reliefs, that has brought to light new details about the original creation and decoration of this monument of the Triumph of the Roman Emperor Titus in Rome in 71 CE over the Jews in Jerusalem the year before.
The second volume in the series, on the Cross, will come out this spring, and is authored by International Catacomb Society Vice President, Robin M. Jensen, The Patrick O'Brien Professor of Theology Biblical Studies/Christianity and Judaism in Antiquity History of Christianity at the University of Notre Dame.
